[IMGCAP(1)]FONTANA, CA-Two industrial sales and a lease that have closed here and in Rialto include one sale that underscores two significant trends in the industrial market, according to a CB Richard Ellis broker who was involved in the deal. Patrick Wood of CBRE says that the sale of  a 122,693-square-foot industrial warehousing and manufacturing building at 13414 Slover Ave. illustrates that, “On the sell side, many companies that own the buildings they occupy are now selling as a way to shore up their balance sheets, and on the buy side, companies are taking advantage of depressed pricing in the market and low interest rates to own their buildings, rather than continue leasing.”[IMGCAP(2)]Wood was part of a CBRE team including Walt Chenoweth, Frank Geraci and Juan Gutierrez that represented the seller. The buyer was Ecoplast Corp., a plastics recycling company. The purchase included a leaseback of a portion of the building.

In the other sale, Los Angeles-based commercial real estate developer Overton Moore Properties reports that it sold a 71,810 -square-foot class A building at 1101 W. Rialto Ave. in Rialto to Procomp Electronics, an importer of aftermarket auto parts, for approximately $3.8 million. OMP was represented by Chenoweth, Geraci, Gutierrez and Wood. OMP vice president Jason Hines noted that the CBRE team is also marketing the sale of the project’s neighboring 247,226-square-foot LEED-certified industrial building at 181 S. Larch Ave. on behalf of OMP.
